This Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is so creamy and smooth! It’s given a nice spicy kick thanks to Harissa, and tastes amazing as a dip or as a spread on anything!
Okay, I’m getting right into this. This Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is unbelievably good. I mean eat this ALONE with crackers for dinner good. Spread this on everything good. It’s surprisingly easy to make and words as a dip and a spread for just about everything you can get your hands on. Put this one on your list.
I love recipes like this because they fall under “things to make to clean out your fridge.” It seems like a super fancy hummus but I literally had homemade Tahini I needed to finish, cherry tomatoes, chickpeas in the fridge and lots of bell peppers. First I was just going to roast it all together then bam! Duh, make hummus!
A few perfect things about this:
The peppers are unbelievably easy to roast
You can roast the tomatoes at the same time
It has a divine spicy kick thanks to harissa
It’s vegan and gluten free
It’s unbelievably creamy
P.S. nothing is strict – want to use yellow peppers in the mix? Go ahead. I had a few yellow peppers too so added them in the mix. It’s your world, friends. The hummus just lives in it.
Here are some tips for this roasted red pepper hummus:
1. Don’t skip the tahini! It boosts the creaminess and deep hummus flavour of the whole dish. It’s amazing store bought, and even better homemade.
2. Feel free to increase of decrease the salt, oil or lime in the recipe. It can all be done to your taste buds.
3. Add the Harissa tablespoon at a time. I got a nice kick out of it, but it might be very spicy for you.
